During long, tough days, the last thing you need is a technology that doesn’t work, keeping you out of touch with your team. A go-to for staying in touch has long been the two way radio, and the MOTOTRBO™ XPR 5000e and XPR 7000e series answers the call for durability from bumps and bruises from day-to-day use.
Often, to protect two way radios a little more, companies will decide to go with the non-display models of these radios – for extra durability and ease of use for their team.
Recently, Motorola released the ‘E series’ of MOTOTRBO™ digital radios – the latest models following the release of the legacy MOTOTRBO™ line in 2006. But there are now non-display capable models available for users looking to upgrade or purchase two way radios for their team.
What is a capable model?
If your team of two way radio users covers a wide area, with multiple sites and channels, then you are likely to need what is known as a trunking system for your communication. This allows multiple users to have conversations at the same time, and free access to do so. A capable model radio has the ability to tie into a trunking system, but that feature is an upgrade you can make at any time.
So what does this mean for you?
Whether you’re using older pre-MOTOTRBO™ models of two way radios or looking to upgrade your legacy MOTOTRBO™ radios, there may be an advantage to choosing the XPR 7350e or XPR 5550e. Let’s take a look at why:
